All it costs to fulfill the average person's needs for digital services is a $5 per month VPS instance. It's even cheaper if you buy a single board computer and host your services at home.

We've been letting companies steal our personal data and sell it to the highest bidder and destroying democracy in the process all to save what? A coffee a month?

This is one of the worst deals in history.

@njoseph In my case, the ISP blocks port 80 and 443 (and our net neutrality rules are dead) so I can’t host my own site except over Tor

My blog and all personal postings are now on a hidden service exactly for this reason. I’m using an old Thinkpad that I got on eBay years ago that now has a dead battery

@cypnk @njoseph If things go badly here I might end up doing the same. There is also the possibility of I2P and a few other things which might be more difficult for ISPs to block.

@cypnk @njoseph this is one reason at weho.st we offer vpns to our contributors with fixed ips to be able to host mail and similar from home like this (inspired by ffdn/neutrinet/yunohost)
